Team Evie
The Million Steps Challenge

About Us

Team Evie is a charity set up in memory of Evie Johnston, based in Cumbria and the North East. Evie was with us for 6 months and due to her multiple and serious cardiac, respiratory and digestive problems spent all her life in hospital.

The aim of Team Evie is to help sick children and their families who face similar challenges to those Evie faced in her all too short life.

This mission is achieved by supporting 18 different wards and medical teams across the North East and Cumbria by raising vital funds to; purchase medical equipment and provide training that is saving children’s lives, make time in hospital easier for sick children and reduce stress for families and be there for bereaved parents in their time of need.

Why we are taking part

When Evie died her parents were provided with a week in a cottage in Northumberland and it was exactly what they needed... This is why as a charity we aim to provide the same support for other parents.

We want to raise £50,000 to renovate, refurbish and fully resource a respite retreat for bereaved parents.

The Respite Retreat will be available 26 weeks per year for parents after the death of their baby or child. The cottage, once renovated, will be a tranquil, comforting space for parents to spend time. They can use it as a base to explore the Lake District, keeping busy and their mind occupied – or, they can lock the door and spend time in the cottage, getting much needed respite and allowing them to find some peace and tranquility as they grieve for their child.
